BACKGROUND Patients with ischemic left ventricular dysfunction have a high risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). It is, however, unclear if the risk and risk factors of SCD in these patients is modulated by the coexistence of mild chronic renal insufficiency. METHODS We performed a post-hoc analysis of the outcome associated with mild renal dysfunction, as defined by an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of <75 ml/min/1.73 m2 in patients allocated to the conventional medical therapy… CONTINUE READING
